Taggart's Guarantee and Puppy Application

Along with each "Puppy Kit" given to the new owner, they will receive a health record for their given puppy. This record will include at least, but not limited to; up-to-date vaccination and worming program.

A $100.00 deposit is required to hold your puppy until such date as agreed upon between buyer and seller at the time the deposit is made. Buyer understands and agrees all deposits placed to hold a puppy are nonrefundable.

Puppies are guaranteed to be free of all communicable diseases for a period of 72 hours from the date of sale (or you receive the puppy). Puppies will be vaccinated, dewormed and vet checked at approximately 6 weeks of health. No puppy will leave our place unless it is in good health, to the best of our knowledge. We recommend taking the puppy to your veterinarian for a checkup. If this puppy displays any indication of poor health within these 72 hours, we must be contacted immediately. Failure to do so will cause this guarantee to become null and void. You will be given a health record. Your puppy will come with a 1 year congenital health guarantee. This means your puppy is guaranteed to be free of disabling congenital defects until 1 year of age. Umbilical and inquinal hernias are easily repaired and are not a reason for returning puppy. Breeder/Seller is not responsible for vet bills after the purchase date.

Breeder does not guarantee size, color or breedability.

This guarantee is limited to replacement only - no cash refunds will be made. An exchange puppy of equal value will be provided when available if breeder/seller’s vet confirms buyer’s vet opinion. Breeder will have up to one year to provide a replacement.
